David Moyes would have been delighted with the manner in which his West Ham team swatted Wolves aside yesterday.
The Hammers have been really poor over the past couple of months but it seems as though the players were back to their old selves against Wolves at the London Stadium yesterday afternoon.
Moyes has worked absolute wonders since returning to take charge of West Ham for the second time in December 2019.
When the Scot took over, the Hammers were in real danger of getting relegated down to the Championship.
Moyes kept West Ham in the Premier League, however, and then led us to an incredible sixth placed finish in the Premier League last season.
This term, the East London outfit are sitting comfortably in fifth spot in the table with just 11 games remaining.
Moyes has managed to galvanise the West Ham players and instil a real level of harmony in the dressing room that hasn’t been present in the East End for quite some time now.
The Scot has also got his recruitment absolutely spot on, bringing in the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek, Kurt Zouma, Vladimir Coufal, Said Benrahma and Craig Dawson.
Video after West Ham vs Wolves proves we need to trust Moyes
The 58-year-old received plenty of criticism from the majority of the Hammers fanbase for his failure to bring in any players during the January transfer window.
We were in a great position to kick on and really push for a place inside the top four. Having failed to strengthen though, West Ham now face a real battle to finish inside the top six.
We strongly believe that we have to trust Moyes and his recruitment though if we want to make genuine progress as a football club. Anyone who wants to go back to the Manuel Pellegrini days? No me neither.
Moyes is incredibly thorough when it comes to bringing in new players. One of the main things that he places real emphasis on is the character of any potential new signings and the likelihood that they will immediately be able to settle into the West Ham dressing room.
Perhaps we all need to start remembering that before slating the Scot for taking his time rather than rushing in and making panic signings for the sake of it.
This video emerged yesterday after our win over Wolves and it proves exactly how good the bond is between the current crop of players at West Ham:
Honestly, could you get any more pure and wholesome than that?
There aren’t many squads at elite level who have the harmony in the dressing room like the one we have at West Ham.
The way in which we have improved as a team over the past two years or so really has been mightily impressive to witness.
If Moyes can add to his current squad in the summer by bringing in two or three truly top-class players who have the right character and attitude, the we really could be on to something special.
Let’s all get behind Moyes in the summer. And if the board allow him to do what he needs to do, West Ham could be on the verge of becoming a real force under the guidance of the Scot.
